Here are a few of the things our clients have shared with us...
I can highly recommend Mark Bate and his company YouCan Consulting if you are a therapist who wants a bespoke website as well as marketing advice. I found Mark incredibly helpful, attentive and patient as he guided me through the process of designing a website for my private practice. I ended up with all that I had hoped for, and more. Mark understands the challenges of psychological practice and the tension that professionals face in marketing their services while retaining an ethical stance. His warm and friendly nature made him a pleasure to deal with at all times.
Consultant Clinical Psychologist
Mark and the YouCan consulting team have been absolutely fantastic in helping developing our new therapy website, and at very reasonable costs. Mark's expertise in designing the site and his informed advice regarding its content has been invaluable.
He has been incredibly patient throughout the process, despite multiple requests and re-edits, and he has worked hard to meet each and every one of our needs and preferences. I cannot recommend his services highly enough.
Dr Gabrielle Brady
Better Therapy Partnership
Mark & YouCan Consultancy, have been extremely supportive & invaluable as I took my first tentative steps in website development & design for my private practice.
Mark is both warm & patient. He provided a professional & informed service & understood the needs & concerns of a psychological therapist in marketing themselves.
Despite multiple requests for re-edits & numerous questions he remained incredibly patient & worked hard to meet my requests.
I ended up with a product that exceeds what I had hoped for. I highly recommend Mark & his company, especially, if you are thinking of taking the first steps to create an online presence.
Thanks Mark for all of your help & guidance!
"My therapy practice is thriving once again and Mark’s input at YouCanConsulting was key to this turnaround. Mark is more than a website designer, he is a marketing specialist who understands therapists and how they think (...). I wholeheartedly recommend Mark to any therapist who is in need of guidance in establishing their own website and who could use some simple effective marketing direction. His response times are quick and his work represents exceptional value for money."
David Newns, Psychotherapist
"Mark has been outstanding in his patience, warmth and professionalism throughout the process of designing my website. I was not sure where to begin and Mark gently guided me creatively and sensibly throughout the process toward an end product that I am very happy with. Importantly Mark has also been responsive to minor adjustments I have wanted since the website 'went live', responding in a swift and helpful manner. I can highly recommend YouCan Consulting and Mark Bate!"
Dr Helen Startup, Psychologist
"Mark has worked closely with me to really understand, clarify & create the branding, content and overall 'feel' for the various elements of my developing practice and has always proved to be insightful, efficient and very much focused on my needs. His ability to translate what is in one's mind into something tangible and effective is evident as is his balance of warmth & credibility. I look forward to working with him for many years to come and would certainly strongly recommend him as an important resource for anyone looking to move into, refresh or build a private practice."
